Ohio Going Blue shared the heartwarming story of the two officers’ visit to the home in a Facebook post.
“Partner and I accidentally went to the wrong address today on a run and stumbled across this beautiful tree,” one of the officers told the site. “The owner took the time to write down every Officer killed in the line of duty this year and place it on the tree. Not only did she do all the Humans but she included all the K9s on the small ornaments. She calls it the ‘Tree of Honor’ guess our paths were meant to cross since she just finished it last night.”
The anonymous officer included a picture of the tree, which was decorated with blue and silver ornaments — most of which included the names of officers killed in the line of duty.
Many readers applauded the homeowner for their tribute to fallen officers.
“Wow,” one commented on Ohio Going Blue’s Facebook page. “That is one awesome woman. The tree is beautiful, but I think it has enough ornaments on it. Hoping she doesn’t have to add any more.”
“Such a beautiful tribute it’s unfortunate we live in a world with so much hatred for law enforcement but seeing things like this tree makes be believe that they’re people in this world that do respect law enforcement,” another wrote.
“What a wonderful, heartwarming story; this wonderful woman is representative of the love and thankfulness of many people in this world; we just don’t hear any good news; however, this was one of the kindest acts I have heard about- May God Bless her,” one reader commented on Mad World News’ Facebook page.
“I don’t believe you went there accidentally, you were led there by our loving God that wanted you to see how there are still a lot of us that are fully behind you,” another wrote. “We appreciate that you face danger every day to protect us. May God bless you all and keep you safe. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all, K9s also.”
“It’s a good thing they went to the wrong house that day or this wonderful tree that this lady made would have never [been] known about. What a sweet lady,” another added.
